I absolutely love this ladder bookshelf!!! I actually bought one back in 2005 and it has been a favorite piece of mine. I recently decided to redo my living room and wanted to get a second one. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to, but am SO happy to see they still have it! Just ordered a second one! It is perfect all around... sturdy, looks like high quality, costs little, and easy to assemble! Would 100 percent recommend!
